  • Kevlar-reinforced lithium-ion batteries shouldn't catch fire

    Ben Coxworth
    28 Jan 2015 | 3:42 pm
    While lithium-ion batteries may outperform their older, lower-tech counterparts, they do have one drawback – occasionally, they catch fire. This can happen when fern-like metal structures known as dendrites form between the battery's two electrodes, causing a short circuit. Now, however, researchers at the University of Michigan have used Kevlar nanofibers to create a barrier between the electrodes, which is impervious to those nasty dendrites. ..

This type of system heats oil that is flowing through the pipe. The oil is hot and that is why it is used to boil water to power a steam generator which in turns powers electricity.

    25 Dec 2014 | 5:58 am
    Over the years, I have done quite a few killer interviews and I am very proud of the long list. Having said that, the opportunity to have interviewed Saul Singer is definitely at the top of my list. If you are not familiar (how are you not familiar?), Saul wrote the book “Startup Nation” along with his brother in law, Dan Senor. Saul has been a journalist for many years, and has been a thought-leader to the Israeli tech scene through his global tours, speaking engagements, and contributions to leading and influential publications across the web and print. You can and should…
  • An Interview with Tomer Sharon, Senior User Experience Researcher at Google about UX, Mobile, and Life at Google

    4 Dec 2014 | 12:06 am
    A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to visit an old friend at Google, NY. Now why is that interesting? Because I call Tomer “An old friend” despite the fact that I had never met him. “Wow, you have a strange definition of friend” is probably what you’re thinking. Could very well be, but if you think about the nature of friendship, you will quickly realize that a friend is someone you learn from, someone you share experiences with, and someone you respect and, well, like. Such is Tomer. I have been following Tomer for years on the social web and consistently…

    By: Hillel Fuld (@Hilzfuld) There are many tech blogs out there. Way too many. For us tech addicts, that means too much daily reading. But then there are the ones that stand out. The tech blogs that consistently put out top-notch work and do it without the need for stupid blogger politics, or an ego the size of south america. Of course that last part, the lack an ego that makes it difficult to work with them, really limits the bunch to a very few selected blogs. The Next Web is at the top of that list.

Since then, I have been doing so as often as I can. Here are all my superstar interviews. When I first decided to try to reach these people, I set my goals quite high and even made myself laugh at the thought of ever accomplishing the goal of meeting and/or interviewing the Woz. Well, it took me all those years but then a few months back, I managed to land my Woz interview. That is old news though, so why am I telling you this? Well,…

See also: Jordan set to swap Iraqi death row militant for pilot captured by ISIS The message, read in English by a voice the Japanese government said was likely that of hostage Kenji Goto, was released online late Wednesday after Jordan offered to hand over the al-Qaida-linked would-be suicide bomber to the Islamic State group in…

    Nothing breeds pettiness like trademark law. For some reason, the intellectual property law with perhaps the best intentions too often devolves into the most silly and unneeded exchanges over the similarities of common words and the desire to cease the shared use of common images. Case in point is the battle between Chubby Noodle and Fat Noodle, two San Francisco noodle places that are too busy sniping with each other to make the best use of their time doing, well, basically anything else with it. Chubby Noodle has filed a trademark suit against Fat Noodle, the forthcoming Chinese restaurant…

    Derek Kerton

    By now, you may have already read last week's news, broken by The Information (paywall -- but covered widely by lots of other sources), that Google plans to launch a mobile cellular service in the US late this year -- as an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator -- basically offering a cellular service, but using someone else's physical network). This is huge news, and it is correctly observed that this is likely to shake up the industry. The Google virtual network, rumored to be called Nova, will run on top of not one, but two infrastructure-based network operators: T-Mobile and Sprint. By…

    Karl Bode
    28 Jan 2015 | 2:35 pm
    We've noted repeatedly that the broadband industry's claims that Title II reclassification will hurt broadband network investment just aren't supported by the facts. Title II, which governs the vocal components of wireless networks, certainly didn't hurt Verizon's effort to become the biggest, most profitable wireless carrier in the country, nor did it stop wireless carriers from spending $45 billion on spectrum at the latest FCC auction. It also certainly didn't hurt Verizon when it asked to have FiOS classified under Title II to nab tax breaks. Apparently forgetting there were other people…

  • Santa To The Sea Half Marathon and 2014 Recap

    3 Jan 2015 | 5:38 pm
    Over the past year I’ve run over 800 miles and raced three half marathons, three challenging trail races over 11 miles long and in several 5ks. I also dedicated a lot of training time to increasing my climbing and logged over 24,000 feet in elevation gain. I trained on several mountain ranges in Southern California and feel like I can knock out a half marathon run at any time, so I did. It’s been a couple of weeks since running the Santa To The Sea Half Marathon in Oxnard on Dec. 18. I was excited to tackle the course and try to set a PR for the half. The flat as a pancake course…

    After tackling the XTERRA Point Mugu 18K Trail Race in October, I decided to do the Santa to the Sea Half Marathon in December next. But that left me with two months without races and I got impatient. I was looking through my timeline on the Strava site when I saw that tri-athlete Anthony Grey was in his last weeks of training for the Surfer’s Point Full Marathon. After that I signed up for the half marathon or the race to be held on Nov. 16, 2014. One of the features of the race is that when you cross the finish line you get a nice beer and some real tacos. Who can say no to tacos?

The race took place today, October 12, 2014, at Point Mugu State Park in Malibu, just a few miles south of Oxnard. It’s been a year and a half since I first started my fitness journey and about a year since running became a big part of that trek. My first trail race was the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22K which was extremely challenging, so much so that I immediately signed up for the Bulldog 25K which pretty…

After doing the XTERRA Malibu Creek Challenge 22K race in May, I had started eyeing the Bulldog race and immediately started training for it. I took a bit of circuitous route though, doing a series of 5K races including the Father’s Day 5K race and three of the fun “Boogie Nights” 5K races that were held on Wednesday afternoons near Surfer’s Point in Ventura. The other element that I added was some comprehensive trail running. Between May and August…

I finally decided on running my first 5K race, the inaugural Father’s Day 5K 10K Race in Ventura on June 15. This race had a couple of appealing aspects – it had a beach cruiser giveaway and the course happens to be on one of my favorite training routes. I also liked the idea of doing a 5K run to determine my “5K pace” which is helpful for planning workouts. For example, if I’m doing a certain type of interval run I can determine the pace based on an actual 5K…

The good news is that it looks like Microsoft has finally decided to launch the app for everyone, so if you were looking forward to getting your productivity on, you will be able to do so.The apps will be similar to the iOS version and Android users will be able to download Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, depending on their needs, or maybe all of them if that’s what you’re after. We should note that the apps will only work on Android…
  • Qantas To Provide First-Class Passengers With Samsung Gear VR Headsets

    29 Jan 2015 | 1:24 am
    Inflight entertainment is hit or miss depending on what kind of flight you take and what kind of planes you get. For example flying on a newer plane would probably nab you slightly newer hardware, while taking an older plane might see you relying on entertainment units a decade old, but it looks like Samsung and Qantas wants to change that.Both companies have recently announced a new partnership in which Samsung will be providing Gear VR virtual reality headsets to passengers who fly first class and on long-haul flights. The headsets will be available on Qantas’ A380 flights and will come…

    Back in December 2014, Microsoft announced that they would be acquiring email management app Acompli. Now we’re sure many of you guys are wondering what Microsoft has planned for the app, whether or not they’ll kill off the app entirely, or maybe make something out of it. Thankfully for fans of Acompli, the app lives, although now Microsoft has since rebranded it to Outlook.For those who are looking for a more powerful or functional email management app for their Outlook or Exchange emails, you will be pleased to learn that the newly launched Outlook app should be able to deliver on that,…

    The world is a dangerous place these days – and one would definitely have to do their bit to ensure that one is aware of the surroundings, especially at night when it can be hard to tell whether there are threats lurking around every corner. Having a personal safety device might be useful, and the Safeti is one of them. Specially designed to trigger a customizable alert which will be sent automatically to emergency contacts, not to mention one’s GPS location, this unique tool has an added advantage – it will not require itself to be connected via Bluetooth to another smartphone…

    It has been known for quite some time now that those who are going to rock to the Windows 10 operating system will be able to enjoy native access to the lossless audio format known as FLAC. Well, having said that, what about smartphones which run on the Windows Phone platform? Good news for audiophiles as well as those who would want close to perfect playback of their music – Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore has tweeted the confirmation that support for FLAC files will also eventually make their way to the Windows Phone platform.According to Belfiore, “Yes, FLAC support will be on…

The 80s and 90s were objectively balls-to-the-wall average, essentially the quiet desk-jokey of the decades, but that didn’t stop Kate Moss and Angelina Jolie from making it look awesome. Thanks to them and, in many parts, to Taylor Swift, I have a new respect for this era that doesn’t merely revolve around the stellar economy. If you’d like to relive the glory of 90’s youth…

  • There's a GHOST in Linux's Library

    28 Jan 2015 | 4:37 pm
    Patches for GHOST, a critical vulnerability in glibc, the Linux GNU C Library, now are available through vendor communities for a variety of Linux server and desktop distributions. Qualys earlier this week reported its discovery of GHOST, a vulnerability that allows attackers to remotely take control of an entire system without having any prior knowledge of system credentials. Qualys security researchers found the GHOST flaw and worked closely with Linux distribution vendors in a coordinated effort to develop a patch for all affected systems.
  • Tech-Savvy Cubans Build Their Own Private Internet

    28 Jan 2015 | 1:22 pm
    Because Cuba's government makes it difficult for all but a handful of Cubans to access the Internet, people in Havana and other parts of the country reportedly have linked thousands of PCs to create an informal network known as "StreetNet," or "SNet" for short. The network was built with commercially available equipment. The PCs are connected by WiFi antennae and Ethernet cables strung across streets and over rooftops. SNet's main uses appear to be sharing gossip and news, accessing popular TV shows and movies, and playing online games.
  • POS Terminals Rich Vein for Gold-Digging Hackers

    John P. Mello Jr.
    28 Jan 2015 | 7:32 am
    Hackers are like gold miners. Once they find a rich vein for their malware, they mine it until it's dry. Point-of-sale terminals are such a vein. Following the success of the Target breach in 2013, the hacker underground was quick to rush more POS malware to market. "Attackers have recognized that the physical point-of-sale terminal is a new viable soft target," said Christopher Budd, threat communications manager at Trend Micro. "So we saw an increase in interest in malware that targets that."

    Oculus VR on Monday unveiled a new project at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Oculus Story Studio will produce movies in virtual reality. It presented its first example of the genre on Monday evening -- a 4-minute experience called Lost. Oculus, which was founded in 2012 and quickly raised $2.4 million via crowdfunding and venture capital, was acquired last year by Facebook for a reported $2.2 billion. Story Studio currently has about 10 people on its team, including some from Pixar Animation Studios and Lucasfilm.

    Google may have contributed to violating the First Amendment rights of three journalists working for WikiLeaks two and a half years ago, when it turned over to the FBI all their email, subscriber information and metadata. Google informed the journalists about its actions last month. "We are astonished and disturbed that Google waited over two and a half years to notify its subscribers that a search warrant was issued for their records," wrote attorneys representing the three in a joint letter to Google.

    When it comes to patching vulnerabilities, Oracle does nothing small. In its latest quarterly CPU (Critical Patch Update), the database giant hands its customers 169 new security fixes affecting many products. The full patch matrix is here. SiliconANGLE offers a decent analysis of the vulnerabilities and patches. From Maria Deutscher’s report: One flaw that drew an outsized amount of attention is a misconfiguration affecting the enterprise technology stalwart’s popular E-Business Suite, which “gobsmacked” its discoverer, in his own words.

    Last week I wrote about the new anti-hacking laws President Obama plans to float in his State of the Union address and how the proposals are Draconian at best. I noted that it’s in our power to educate the masses and stop this thing before it becomes law. To that end, I have something to share with you. Derek Watson — better known in the security community as Blak Dayz (blakdayz) — posted the following call to action: Hackers. It’s time to UNITE.

  • Bad Anti-Hacking Laws: We Can Educate the Public

    Bill Brenner
    15 Jan 2015 | 2:19 pm
    There’s much alarm in the security community over new anti-hacking laws President Obama plans to float in his State of the Union address next week. The alarm is justified. What he proposes, as my friend Rob Graham (@ErrataRob) wrote in this important post, “are blunt political solutions which reflect no technical understanding of the problem.” Obama’s proposed anti-hacking laws are designed to arm companies with legal protections for sharing information with each other and the government about hacking threats. The President believes it’s necessary to help prevent…

    For the last few years I’ve been praising Microsoft for taking great strides to improve security. This morning, I’m tempted to take it all back. For the last decade, Microsoft has issued advance notifications the Thursday before each security patch release. It’s been a valuable service, helping IT security practitioners to be better prepared. Yesterday, the software giant announced it was ending the service, claiming that not enough people are using it. It’s a bad move that comes on the heels of other bad moves, which includes slashing a lot of good security talent in…

    So many people I’ve spoken to over the past few weeks are busy or stressed. That’s their default, busy and/or stressed. Instead of talking about achievements or good things or focusing on themselves, it seems like we’re all perpetuating this idea that busy = normal, busy = working hard, busy = being a good person.

    James O'Malley
    28 Jan 2015 | 8:19 am
    The big tech news today is that Apple has posted record profits: A staggering $18 billion in the last quarter – that’s more than any company in history. The success is largely down the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, which have both been wildly successful – with over 74.5m iPhones shifted in that period. Wow. But the big question now… is what can Apple do with the cash? Sure, the company might have already announced that the shareholders are getting some big dividends, but that’s pretty boring. What should Apple really spend $18bn on? The London 2012 Olympics again Hey, so…

I began a draft post a while back that compared Tor (the amazing privacy and anti-censorship network and all privacy-protecting software to condoms. More on that soon, but let's actually talk about how you might have trust in a software project, using Tor as an example. Tor has been in the news recently, and I've had a ton of people ask me about how safe it is to use, so I figured one click-bait headline is as good as another in having an open and honest discussion about Tor. First, let's be transparent. Tor - not unlike the…

  • Elon Musk May Unveil Mars Colony Plans This Year

    7 Jan 2015 | 7:34 pm
    During a Reddit AMA earlier this week, Elon Musk said he hopes to announce his Mars transport system plans. As you’d expect, I’m incredibly excited about this. We are still obviously a long ways away from the first manned mission to Mars, but there is finally substantive work being done to get us there. Of course, NASA announced late last year that the Orion space capsule is a part of their plan toward a manned mission to Mars, which is terribly exciting. Humans conducting experiments on Mars and exploring the planet is something I hope to see before I die. But Musk and SpaceX, I…

  • Hong Kong’s Challenge to China

    Kyle Baxter
    29 Sep 2014 | 6:02 pm
    After China placed limitations on candidates for Hong Kong’s city leader, Hong Kong erupted in protest. This, of course, presents a large challenge to Xi Jinping and the PRC. Edward Wong and Chris Buckley write for the Times: China’s Communist Party has ample experience extinguishing unrest. For years it has used a deft mix of censorship, arrests, armed force and, increasingly, money, to repress or soften calls for political change. But as he faces massive street demonstrations in Hong Kong pressing for more democracy in the territory, the toolbox of President Xi Jinping of China…

    The phone dominates your attention. For nearly every use, the phone has your undivided attention. Browsing the web, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, watching video, reading, messaging—all require focus on a screen that fills your vision, your primary attention, and generally some kind of interaction. Everything else, too, is always a home button or notification-tap away at all times. Is that a shock when the phone is the single gateway to nearly everything? The PC is now for doing work, but the phone is for messaging, taking photos, sharing them, the web, Twitter, Facebook, finding places to…

  • Ex-CEO of Opera Launches Vivaldi – A Powerful Browser for Power Users

    Pallab De
    27 Jan 2015 | 7:56 am
    Opera Software has always had a fairly sizeable and loyal fan base. The decades old browser never quite went mainstream, at least not on the desktop, but it attracted droves of power users thanks to its innovative streak and host of unique features. However, with its switch to the Chromium engine, Opera ditched almost everything that made it unique, and in the process disappointed most of its power users. It has gone from being a cutting-edge internet suite to a light-weight Chrome shell. There are still many users who use Opera 12 – released over two years ago, as their daily driver.

    Bing Pulse, the real-time viewer polling and feedback tool from Bing, is going to be part of CNN and MSNBC’s coverage of the upcoming State of the Union address by United States President Mr Barack Obama. The way it worked in the past is analysts and pundits across networks and publications would try to make sense of the variety of feedback channels they get their data from, and then try to provide the updates to the viewers. Naturally that took some time and the final analyses would take hours and days, if not weeks. Instead, Bing Pulse will enable MSNBC and CNN to provide real-time…

The company discovered a technique to turn their MRAM memory cell arrays into very sensitive magnetic sensors that have a much larger range than any commercial sensor.The production process is very similar to the MRAM process the company uses, but with a different cell design. Basically it is a very simple sensor that detects changes in a magnetic field from a perpendicular magnet.Crocus thinks that this sensor can be used as a mechanical sensor for flexible displays.

Unfortunately this means the app doesn’t integrate into my password storage app. This means I would have to log into it in a separate window, copy my password and paste it into the Fluid Beats app to start music.

You know the laser guns in Star Wars? Yes, those blaster bolts should actually move so quickly that we would not be able to perceive the light.

Yes, we have less content—about half as much, in fact. But we also have more content than the UK, or Brazil, or any other country in the world besides America. Moreover, the quality of our content is argubaly the highest in the world: we have lots of hit TV shows and movies that the US subscribers don't actually have access to. Data from Netflixable, first published by the Toronto Star, is the strongest evidence of this yet. The data shows, for…

  • Canadian Crowdfunding Campaigns You May Want to Fund This Week

    28 Jan 2015 | 2:06 pm
      Domus 2015 is starting to look like the year that the smart home really takes off. But one of the biggest things holding the concept back so far has been that people don’t want to replace a whole house full of appliances with smarter ones. Now, Vancouver-based Domus Living is getting around that problem by turning ordinary appliances into smart, connected devices. It does that through a connected plug. Appliances and electronics plug into Domus’ “iPlug” which plugs directly into the wall outlet. After that, the appliance can be controlled through its app. It…

    YouTube users will no longer need to make sure they have installed the latest version of Adobe Flash in order to watch videos. Google’s online video platform now defaults to the HTML5 video player. HTML5 is a web markup language used to standardize the display of websites and their content. The coding format is essentially a one-size-fits-all answer. Instead of making developers pick the best solution for their needs from among the troubling and rather large array of plugins and software, they can easily display video and other online elements all through HTML5. HTML5 was introduced in…

  • 4 Myths About Online Giving

    Kent Woodyard
    28 Jan 2015 | 11:00 am
    As the Director of Business Development for a faith-based online and mobile giving provider, I spend most of my days talking with pastors and church leaders about the ways in which technology can transform the “giving culture” at their churches. During these conversations, I am often struck by how hesitant many church leaders are to engage with digital giving tools. Despite the fact that less than 7% of transactions in the United States are conducted via cash and check, many thousands of churches continue to count on cash and check donations for 100% of their annual budget. Even more…

Yet we do this exact kind of thing all the time. Think about online comments left in all capital letters.

  • The Challenge Every Christian Creative Faces

    Wes Molebash
    27 Jan 2015 | 7:00 am
    Christian creatives face a unique struggle, if I may call it that. From the moment their creative talents are first discovered by their church leadership and/or Christian mentors, they’re often advised to create a specific type of art. You see, it’s not enough for a Christian creative to simply create stuff; they have to create Christian stuff. So if you love Jesus and you’re a dancer, you’ve probably been told to be a “Christian” dancer. If you like to cook, you’ve probably been told to be a “Christian” chef. If you like to…

Basically it’s supposed to allow you to extend your current desktop screen to an iPad — just as if you had an extra monitor. Other apps already do this, but Duet’s claim to fame is it will extend your desktop in a way that’s lag free. So if you’re watching movies or animation and moving elements between monitors, you’ll not notice lag. Duet’s unique feature that allows this is that Duet connects to your Mac using the USB port and either 30 pin connector or Lightning connector. I’ve…

    Europe stands on the threshold of a major revolution in the way we teach our children of computing. A succession of major European reports (Royal Society, Informatics Europe, CEPIS) has diagnosed the problem, and there is a settled consensus on what to do. Yet progress is slow and patchy. Let’s fix that! It is no longer enough simply to teach our children how to use computers. To a large extent they know this already (albeit perhaps less than they suppose), but more importantly technology changes so fast that the subject is out of date before it hits the classroom.

    Pranks can be a lot of fun. Especially those that use science. The Gallium Spoon Mold will let you create teaspoons that will melt away as your guest stirs their tea. Gallium is a silver colored metal with a very low melting point. The melting point is just slightly above room temperature so your average cup of tea would be boiling to this metal.

    At CES 2015 we had a chance to check out the Typo 2 iPhone 6 keyboard case. Here is what we think of the keyboard case: The quality of the case was build up to standard unlike some of its Japaneses competitors , but the physical attachment to the iPhone was not so secure it would be easy to disconnect the case from the iPhone simply by dropping the device it self , this is a big factor when thinking about rather or not to connect this keyboard case that enhances typing or a protective case that can protect the device it self.

    In rounding up the techiest Super Bowl XLIX commercials for you yesterday I saw a mention that web site domain provider Go Daddy was going to rely on scantily clad women as well as animals to spread its message during the game. Little did I suspect that the animals are what would get the company in hot water this time.But following a public outcry after Go Daddy previewed the ad yesterday, the company has pulled the commercial, in which a pup named Buddy falls out of the back of a truck, makes a courageous trek home, only to found out he's been sold via a Go Daddy-based website.

    My 5 predictions for the tech world in 2015 and the next 5 years; Sensors, Indoor Location, Alternative networks, Wearable computers, the demise of cable TV. Billions of sensors will monitor everything, and become the next platform shift in computing. Your home, car, office, and even people will have special sensors that help us manage the complexities of life. Indoor Location and Positioning, enabled by Smartphones, will become a part of many existing apps, and enable new services.

    Indoor Location and Positioning technology is the Next Big Thing. It is bringing the power of GPS and Maps indoors. We spend most of our time indoors, working, shopping, eating, at the mall, at the office, on campus, etc. Apple and Google are competing on street maps, but are also working on Indoor Location. Lots of startups are going after this market too. In this post I will mention all that I am aware of.

    Indoor Location and Positioning will be huge! Apple recently acquired WifiSlam for its indoor mapping and positioning technology. Why? Because we spend most of our time indoors, working, shopping, eating, at the mall, at the office, on campus, etc.  Google already has Indoor Maps for many airports and shopping malls. The race is on. The explosion of Smartphones with built in sensors, accelerometer, gyro, wifi radios, and camera make indoor positioning possible.  GPS and Maps are great, but they only work outdoors and with clear line of sight to the sky.

Everyone is happy. But, the company left all that money on the table, the difference between the $12 IPO price and the $25 first day close. This can mean hundreds of millions of dollars for the company. Facebook optimized the value of the IPO to the company by pricing high, and brought in billions of dollars in cash. Facebook stock…

(The money will be going to support the families of those killed, though there is a bit of a sour note starting with people trying to sell copies on eBay) If the aim of the shootings was to cow Hebdo and its satire it has been a complete failure so far, and also far any attempt to further inflame France (if anything the UK media seems more cowed than the French).

Title II, which governs the vocal components of wireless networks, certainly didn't hurt Verizon's effort to become the biggest, most profitable wireless carrier in the country, nor did it stop wireless carriers from spending $45 billion on spectrum at the latest FCC auction. It also certainly didn't hurt Verizon when it asked to have FiOS classified under Title II to nab tax breaks. Apparently forgetting there were other people…

Although, I must say, although I like the idea behind Patreon, I don’t like the execution much. It’s very inflexible. Why can’t I set up different types of patronage for different endeavors at different price points? Why is everything either recurring by month or recurring by thing created?

Kristin asked me if I felt older on the way to church this morning, and my reply was, “I feel like I’m learning new things recently.” This is my first birthday without a dad and it’s about 6 months since he passed. I was struck oddly today by the lack of him calling me up to sing the silly penny song that he’s sung to me every birthday that I can remember (counting pennies you receive for each year behind you). But beyond that small sadness, I’ve been…
  • I love my new Kindle Voyage

    C.K. Sample III
    3 Jan 2015 | 10:47 am
    Thanks to my in-laws, Curt & Marian, I got a brand new Kindle Voyage (WiFi with Special Offers) for Christmas, and so far it’s been a great upgrade from the low end model Kindle that had replaced my Kindle Paperwhite that I broke over a year ago (flew out of my bag while I was slinging said bag into the trunk of my car; Kindle Paperwhite landing screen down on the parking lot pavement). The 300 dpi screen is definitely noticeably sharper than previous generations and the lighting has been improved since the Paperwhite came out. It’s now very even, with no noticeable dark…

    No more standing desk This is a brand new shot of my office at Chaotic Moon. The past year and a half, I’ve been working at a standing desk, but this morning I walked in, grabbed a free chair, removed the four screws from the legs of my desk that were holding it at standing height, and adjusted them down to a comfortable ergonomic height for me to work while seated. Why? Well, first off: there have been many positive side effects from working standing up over the past year and a half. All of the lower back issues that I had been having all but disappeared last year. My legs and ankles…

    You’ve surely heard of the Raspberry Pi: the palm-sized computer with enough power to run servers or media centres complete with retro gaming.  Rasberry Pi has the connectivity to control security systems and enthusiast projects; and with the software tools to encourage the teaching and understanding of programming. Since its launch in 2012 the Raspberry Pi has exceeded expectations, becoming a must-have piece of computer hardware for enthusiasts and tech-heads. For a small project developed to be sold to schools and colleges to teach programming principles, that’s not bad.

  • MommyTech TV – Hands On With TempTraq, the Temperature Patch for Babies

    Chip Chick Staff
    28 Jan 2015 | 2:56 pm
    The whole idea behind smart technology is to make life easier. And, nobody needs life made easier more than new parents—the constant worrying, the lack of sleep, and the never-ending to-do lists can get really stressful, so it’s always welcome when a device like TempTraq makes child rearing not only easier, but more reassuring. We already took a look at what TempTraq does—a small, soft patch to be worn by babies that takes regular temperature measurements, alerting parents when their baby’s temperature spikes unexpectedly. We got to see a demo of TempTraq in action when Matt…
  • Twitter Finally Adds Group Messaging and Video Features

    In the next few weeks, Twitter is going to try to become an even more versatile place for news—both for the ones who write it and the ones who read (or watch) it. The company will be rolling out group messaging and video uploads to all versions of its app soon. Group messaging will work similar to direct messages, but can include up to 20 people at once. You’ll be able to create a new group and add others to it, regardless of who follows who. If you do add someone, they’ll get a notification and the option to duck out of the group if the conversation isn’t going to be…

    That’s the main thrust of a new study performed by Jesse Fox and Margaret C. Rooney of Ohio State University. The Dark Triad and trait self-objectification as predictors of men’s use and self-presentation behaviors on social networking sites investigates the most pressing matter of our time, the selfie, and comes up with some lukewarm conclusions; namely, that men who take a bunch of selfies tend to score higher, but not that much higher, on measures of psychopathy and (shocker!) narcissism. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that we didn’t need a publicly-funded study…

    Today in weird underwear, we have the M-Y Fronts being peddled on Firebox. Nothing much, just some underwear with faces printed on the front and back. That’s surely what you want to see when you’re taking care of business in the bathroom, right? M-Y Fronts are 100 percent cotton briefs, um, enhanced by the presence of the faces of your choice. Just get a picture of someone up against a white background, and that face will be faithfully affixed to front and back of these briefs. I’m not sure if you should be putting your favorite or least favorite person on these. I…

Selfies are coming to World of Warcraft, and if you don’t think that means level 100s massacring level 15s and taking duckface selfies over their crumpled bodies, you don’t know the Internet. In Patch 6.1 of Warlords of Draenor, WoW’s umpteenth expansion, selfies have arrived by way of the S.E.L.F.I.E. Camera, a reward for the new level 100 Field Photography quest.

    At the same time, Apple hasn't figured out many new things to do with the iPad to bring back the old excitement. During the October keynote to launch the latest model, Apple executives gushed and gushed and gushed about how *thin* the new iPad was. And it is! The iPad Air 2 is thin, elegant, and so light it just might float right off your lap. But the drama is gone. The iPad is nice. You might still hang out together sometimes on the couch. But when you're done, you probably just put it down on the pile with all the magazines and mail and other stuff stacking up on the coffee table. It's just…

    Four years ago, we wrote about YouTube's early support for the HTML5 video tag and how it performed compared to Flash. At the time, there were limitations that held it back from becoming our preferred platform for video delivery. Most critically, HTML5 lacked support for Adaptive Bitrate (ABR) that lets us show you more videos with less buffering. Over the last four years, we've worked with browser vendors and the broader community to close those gaps, and now, YouTube uses HTML5 video by default in Chrome, IE 11, Safari 8 and in beta versions of Firefox.

    (What you’re about to read was dictated by me into a machine.) Through the years, I’ve purchased numerous iterations of dictation software from the company now called Nuance. For some reason, dictating has never worked for me. Perhaps it’s because I was born after the Don Draper era. When I graduated from college, I could type 80 words a minute, which is probably faster than I can think. I can probably type faster than that now, but as anyone who has read this blog knows, the faster I type the more goofy things I say. And one of my rules of blogging is to not work over the…

Cluetrain began as a list of 95 theses posted on the website that captured the sentiments of Searls and three other tech-industry marketing veterans. The Cluetrain Manifesto quickly evolved into a best-selling book that provided many early online marketers with a foundation for understanding and predicting how buying and selling would change when buyers have…
  • Last Minute Gift Ideas from Tennessee, 2014

    Rex Hammock
    17 Dec 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Previously (but I missed last year), I’ve listed some last minute Tennessee-related holiday gift ideas. This year, the emphasis is on food grown or produced (e.g. cooked, prepared, collected, etc.) in the state.

  • A Clearer View of the Future of Google Glass

    Rex Hammock
    15 Nov 2014 | 12:32 pm
    (See Update) November 14, 2014, via Reuters: Of 16 Glass app makers contacted by Reuters, nine said that they had stopped work on their projects or abandoned them, mostly because of the lack of customers or limitations of the device. Three more have switched to developing for business, leaving behind consumer projects. Last year, I observed in a post–one that included an email exchange  with Don Norman of Nielson-Norman and author of The Design of Everyday Things–that I believed the product release of Google Glass was bungled by Google. As much as I’m a fan and customer of…

    Over the last two years I have spent a lot of time on the photos section of this website. I have redesigned and refactored it a few times, along the way evolving it to a place to support and house my passion projects: in-depth photo stories from my travels. These photo stories are the perfect coalescence of my passions: design, development, travel and photography. I've created three large photo story collections so far: Greece, France and Japan. While each trip only lasted a week or two, each collection took some 3 or 4 months of spare time on weekends to create, comprised of many photosets…

    Drone. Quadcopter. Phantom. Dronie. You’ve no doubt heard about these terms with increasing gusto in recent months. They are everywhere in the news now; from seeing more dronies slide into your Twitter timeline and taking dronecations with Travel By Drone to an influx of startups taking drone tech to new heights. Heck, even Martha Stewart got in on the act with her piece on drones in TIME yesterday. Some of my dronies What exactly am I talking about when I say drone?

    Last week I attended Google I/O for the first time and participated on a small panel about cross-platform design challenges. There was so much going on that it was a bit of sensory overload, much like walking down the Las Vegas strip for the first time. Google announced many welcomed Android improvements such as a battery saver mode and lock-screen notifications; something you'd previously need to use add-ons for as mentioned in Android is better. More uses of the Android operating system emerged: Android Wear, Android Auto and Android TV. A smartphone won't be the only thing that comes to…

    Last week Dropbox launched a new gallery app called Carousel. It's a focused app, only letting people view their photos stored on Dropbox1 and conveniently share them. There are a few interesting parts in the app but there is one piece I’d like to highlight: Swipe down to hide. This gesture doesn't delete your photo, it simply removes it from the gallery view. It's not a heavy action. There's no cognitive overhead, no thinking "wait, do I want this shot?" as there generally is when deleting items.

    A few weeks ago my DNS provider Zerigo sent an email stating that due to recent infrastructure upgrades they would need to raise their prices. For my meager DNS needs that ended up being a huge price hike: from $39 per year to $25 per month1. Prices were set to take effect a month later. I decided to put my current dev work — designing and building new photoblog functionality to showcase my Japan trip photos — on hold to move away from Zerigo. I chose to switch to AWS Route 53.

    When you join Twitter, it sets your profile picture as a colored egg but for people to take you seriously, you replace that egg with your face. This is the first rule of the Twitter book but some users aren’t paying attention. Maybe they are too lazy to change the avatar, maybe they want to stay anonymous or maybe they are bots and fake users created by spammers who “sell” Twitter followers.

    Your mobile phone has a globally unique number associated with it, called the IMEI number, that uniquely identifies your device within the mobile network. If your phone gets lost or is stolen, you would need to provide this IMEI number to the law enforcement agencies and the telecom operator for them to blacklist your device and prevent anyone else from using your phone on their wireless network. As you probably know, it is relatively easy to find the IMEI number of your mobile phone. While there are apps that will help you retrieve this number with a tap, you don’t really need one.

A rising sun The PC-98 started as project PCX-04, NEC’s (TYO: 6701)  first venture into the 16-bit computing era. The series’ first model, the PC-9801, was released in 1982. It came equipped 5Mhz processor running on Intel’s…

  • My Favorite Lightroom plugin Client Response Gallery gets Upgraded!

    Terry White
    27 Jan 2015 | 7:50 am
    I’ve talked about and shown The Turning Gate’s Client Response Gallery plugin for Lightroom. This plugin produces a totally customizable web gallery to get feedback/pic selections from your client. I couldn’t imagine being a photographer without this awesome solution. Last year The Turning Gate moved all of their popular web publishing solutions to their CE4 platform. The obvious omission was the Client Response Gallery (CRG). What the CE4 platform enabled was the ability to use Lightroom’s “Publish Services” to update your website (no matter where…

    Late last year I declared that the Netgear Trek300 was my new favorite travel router. (that was sooooo last year ) However, it didn’t take long for one of my readers to point me to an even smaller travel router with many of the same features as the Netgear at half the price. I like the HooToo TripMate Nano for many of the same reasons that I like the Netgear: Provides an 802.11n WiFi hotspot for all of your devices to connect to on the road.

    People in my immediate circle know that I enjoy a good cappuccino or latte. People even commented on my Starbucks card in the screenshot that I did in my Apple Pay review. However, when I moved last year the one thing I missed was having a Starbucks nearby. Yes there are other coffee shops in the area and probably even better coffee, but I just haven’t found one that I enjoy enough to make it a regular stop. My old Starbucks was “on the way” to a lot of things. I have looked at expresso makers in the past and for a good one they seemed very pricey and very complicated to…

    The Evangelist Marketing Institute -- Alex L. Goldfayn -- Techniques For Revenue Growth

  • Opening and Closing

    Alex Goldfayn
    26 Jan 2015 | 2:09 pm
    If you want to grow revenue, nothing will do so faster, easier and more dramatically than marketing. Marketing opens what sales closes. We must sell, and we must close. But we must constantly be opening new opportunities. We must consistently create new opportunities for our sales function. If all you do is close, eventually, you’re walled in, trapped, with no opportunities (for growth) in sight. Your pipeline will run dry. To open, we must systematically communicate our value to people who can buy it. That’s all marketing is. To open, to grow, me must market.   The…
  • Market Especially to Existing Customers

    Alex Goldfayn
    19 Jan 2015 | 4:31 pm
    We must market to existing customers as much as we market to prospects.There are two big reasons for this: 1. The competition is calling on them aggressively. Every time they say “no” to them, they make a conscious decision to say with you. We must help them make this decision, again and again, by clearly explaining all of the wonderful things we do for them. Right now, they probably don’t know about everything you do so well for them. 2. Your customers do not know about all of the products and services they can buy from you. When you do not market to your existing…

    Alex Goldfayn
    12 Jan 2015 | 2:48 pm
    Unlike your products and services, which need to be precise and exact, your marketing needs only to be helpful. I heard Alan Weiss say this once, and it has stuck with me ever since: In marketing, quantity trumps quality. The more that people hear from us, the more they will buy from us. So stop trying to make it perfect. Stop putting it off. Write or record something helpful to your customers and prospects, and send it to them. Then do it again. And again. Ready? FIRE! Then aim, assess and adjust. If it’s working, double down on it. If it’s not working, or you don’t like…

  • Revenue Resolutions

    Alex Goldfayn
    29 Dec 2014 | 1:50 pm
    Resolutions for dramatic revenue growth in 2015 — for you, your colleagues and your staff: 1. Each day I will communicate my value to at least one customer or prospect who can buy from me — in person, on the phone, or least preferably, via a personal email. 2. I will grow my company’s list of customers and prospects, because if my list isn’t growing, my revenue likely isn’t either. 3. I resolve to regularly mail or e-mail value to my growing list. My communications will focus on improving the lives and companies of my readers, not selling, pitching or promoting.

The Teen Mom star, and porn actress, pseudo-stripper, and business woman, supposedly did her research before having the procedure done. But, apparently nothing prepared her for what could happen if she had a reaction of epic proportions. Farrah Abraham described on Monday’s episode of The Doctors exactly what happened that fateful day. She said, “I found this doctor who specialized only in facial plastic and cosmetic surgery.

Now some media outlets are reporting that Letterman’s Late Show has extended an invitation to Jay Leno to appear as a guest. Reuters is reporting that Jay Leno has in fact been invited to appear on The Late Show some time before David Letterman retires in May. The offer was extended some time late in 2014. CBS is supposedly looking to capitalize on the hype surrounding Letterman’s upcoming retirement. If Jay Leno agrees to go on the show, it could definitely up the ratings. Leno retired from The…

The African-American actress recently pleaded not guilty to charges of misdemeanor lewd conduct stemming from an incident late last year when she and boyfriend Brian James Lucas were reported having sex in a parked car. The Django Unchained actress has said all along that she and her boyfriend — whom she points out is white — were not having sex. “We are, quite frankly, appalled and disturbed that the L.A. prosecutor’s office has chosen to file these charges against…

The funny girl, just like most other actors, had to endure some very trying times while scraping her way to the top. Molly Shannon told a story recently about what seemed like her worst audition ever. Molly Shannon was already understandably stressed when she ran into a woman in the hallway that clearly needed to be slapped. “I bumped into a girl before the audition, and she was like, ‘Oh my God. It’s so nice to see you! Have you gained, like, 100 pounds?’…

But Mr. Sherlock himself is pretty much universally loved. So how did Benedict Cumberbatch end up pissing off people of color recently? Oddly enough, the whole thing happened when Benedict Cumberbatch was actually bemoaning what he saw as a bad situation in his home country vis a vis actors of color getting work. He spoke with Tavis Smiley about it. Benedict Cumberbatch told Smiley: “I think as far as…

    If you asked any teenager between the age of 17 and 21, which application he uses the most, there is a fat chance it will be Snapchat. Given the disposable nature of the platform, teenagers are very comfortable with the platform for the harmless fun element of it. It is due to this wide range of audience that is already on Snapchat why several of the major brands such as Lacoste and Pepsi have started gradually utilizing the platform for digital marketing opportunities. Snapchat to their credit, seems to want to embrace this and has added a brand new Discover section which is visible just on…

    There are very few in the industry that can make an impact by throwing the weight of their numbers, like Apple does. In fact, when the news broke about the FY 2015 Q1 results were about to be announced, you could very easily have written this post but left the space before billion empty so you could fill that up. It is a given that usually every Quarter, the results only improvise and things only get better. For the FY 2015 Q1, which ended on December 31, 2014, Apple has reported a net revenue of $74.6 billion with profits alone for $18 billion. Needless to say, this is the best the…

It was a bit strange given Motorola’s consistency of rolling down updates that this one took so long for Motorola to process, but the good news is that it is finally here after almost a month of the official Android Lollipop update coming out. The second generation of the Motorola Moto G had received the update to Lollipop fairly early-ish around last month only, but the first generation, which was…

    Apple is soon going to admit that iPhones are more popular in China than in the US as the tech giant has sold more of those smartphones in China last year than in its home country, the USA. This is the first time in history that Chinese market appears more powerful for smartphone sales. In 2014, the Cupertino based company made a deal with China’s largest network provider, China Mobile that expanded Apple’s operation in the country. Soon after Apple released its smartphones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus in October, high demand for the devices enabled the Chinese market to outsell the US…

  • Forking Apple Brands

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    25 Jan 2015 | 8:53 pm
      by Jean-Louis Gassée After last week’s lengthy discussion of Apple’s software foibles, today’s fare is lighter but intriguing: The Apple logo is a stamp of excellence that’s proudly worn by the Mac, iPhone, iPad, Watch… why is it withheld from one of Apple’s other major group of products?] Naming a computer company Apple was a true stroke of genius, the kind that sits beyond the reach of consciousness. With the name came a visual representation. The first, unofficial logo evoked Isaac Newton’s famous epiphany: (Source: Edible Apple) Not a stroke of genius. It was a too…

      by Frédéric Filloux Digital media are stuck with bad economics resulting in relentless deflation. It’s time to wake-up and make 2015 the year of radical — and concerted — solutions. Trends in digital advertising feel like an endless agony to me. To sum up: there is no sign of improvement on the performance side; a growing percentage of ads are sold in bulk; click-fraud and user rejection are on the rise, all resulting in ceaseless deflation. Call it the J-Curve of digital advertising, as it will get worse before it gets better (it must – and it will). Here is…

      by Jean-Louis Gassée A flurry of recent software accidents in iOS and OS X raises questions about Apple’s management of its relentless increase in R&D spending. For the past six months or so, I’ve become increasingly concerned about the quality of Apple software. From the painful gestation of OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) with its damaged iWork apps, to the chaotic iOS 8 launch, iCloud glitches, and the trouble with Continuity, I’ve gotten a bad feeling about Apple’s software quality management. “It Just Works”, the company’s pleasant-sounding motto, became an easy target,…

But by upending existing technology platforms, application distribution, and carrier business models, he kickstarted a new era of computing whose impact is yet to be fully understood.

    What was the last romantic gift you gave? Did it have a diamond? If not, you’re not alone. Diamond gifts as well are falling out of favour with many, particularly younger people. Perhaps it’s because of a suspicion of diamond marketing, and a rejection of the idea that love can be measured in cut, clarity, colour, and carat. Perhaps it’s because of growing awareness of blood diamonds fueling war in countries like Angola, Sierra Leone, and Côte d’Ivoire.

    I have a moment to get the final post of this series finished (see my author page for parts 1-5).  We went through the basic process of creating Windows Failover Clusters and adding SQL or other Generic Services to a Windows Failover Cluster.  Everything that we did in the series so far was done in a lab environment as it was being written, and all of the screenshots have been from those exercises. This final installment will be no different. Everything presented in this installment is out of the lab and has been built just as it is described.  The Windows Failover Cluster is useful for…
  • Write code that matters

    As a programmer, how do you measure you productivity? What kinds of tools do you have to determine project progress? Are you using story points? Is it the number of stories delivered in a certain time span? Do you track your progress with burn-down charts? When you think about a successful working day, one of those days where you come home to your partner and say it has been really productive, what happened that day? For me it is very simple. I measure my productivity in code. Thus a really productive day is a day where I have written and tested a good amount of code. Or even more specific…

    Did you know that, according to a paper from the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), the vast majority of successful security breaches to corporate networks are made using basic techniques, and that by implementing just four critical security controls you could remove 85 to 90% of threats? These four controls have been cut down from a list of 35 that a branch of the Australian government called the Defence Signals Doctorate put together based on their analysis of the cyber-attacks they were subject to.

    For years when creating web sites we've added a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section to our site. Please stop NOW. You don't need an FAQ The usual answer is that this is where we put all the questions that people are always asking us and it saves time answering the same questions over and over again. That's why it is called "frequently asked questions" - makes sense doesn't it. NO! Think about it Why is everyone asking those questions? There are several reasons but they all come down to it being your fault. If you had written clearer content then people wouldn't have any questions. If you…
  • Not all code is created equal

    It should be no surprise that I am a supporter of the GPL licence for software. Today I would like to apologise to developers of javascript and icon libraries that I have unknowingly ripped off and defrauded. When I download an extension licensed as GPL I know that I am allowed to use that software how and where I want. However many extensions use libraries written by others and not all libraries are created equally. Unless I look at the raw files outside of Joomla it is often impossible for me to know what libraries are being used. Do you ever look? You should! I am not talking about "is it…

    We all know that size really does matter no matter what some nice people might tell you but does length matter as well? There is no point in writing great content if nobody will read it so length does matter - line length that is - what else did you think I was talking about. Too short If the length of the line too short then as a reader your eyes will be travelling left and right so often that it breaks the reading flow. Speed readers and content scanners also find that they are starting the next line before finishing the first and as a result may miss important content or misunderstand the…

    Earlier this year Jisse asked if I was prepared to review the book he was writing on Joomla plugins. Proof reading is something that strangely I enjoy doing even if it is quite a slow and tedious task. However I did warn Jisse that I wouldn't be able to review anything other than the language as "I am not a developer". I have always known that plugins are one of the most powerful features of Joomla but as "I am not a developer" I have always had to rely on plugins published on the JED or pay someone to develop them for me. After reading the book I have surprised myself by being able to…

    28 Jan 2015 | 4:41 pm
    Carrier hotels are an integral part of global communications infrastructure.  The carrier hotel serves a vital function, specifically the role of a common point of interconnection between facility-based (physical cable in either terrestrial, submarine, or satellite networks) carriers, networks, content delivery networks (CDNs), Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and even private or government networks and hosting companies. In some locations, such as the One Wilshire Building in Los Angeles, or 60 Hudson in New York, several hundred carriers and service providers may interconnect physically…
  • Risk Management Strategies for IT Systems

    26 Jan 2015 | 3:28 pm
    Risk management has been around for a long time.  Financial managers run risk assessments for nearly all business models, and the idea of risk carries nearly as many definitions as the Internet.  However, for IT managers and IT professionals, risk management still frequently takes a far lower priority that other operations  and support activities. For IT managers a good, simple definition for RISK may be from the Open FAIR model which states: “Risk is defined as the probable frequency and magnitude of future loss”   (Open FAIR) Risk management should follow a structured process…

    In an informal survey of words used during seminars and discussions, two main themes are emerging at the Pacific Telecommunications Council’s 2015 annual conference.  The first, as expected, is development of more submarine cable capacity both within the Pacific, as well as to end points in ANZ, Asia, and North America.  The second, software defined networking (SDN), as envisioned could quickly begin to re-engineer the gateway and carrier hotel interconnection business. New cable development, including Arctic Fiber, Trident, SEA-US, and APX-E have sparked a lot of interest.  One…

    By: Mary Ludloff and Terence Craig We’ve been promising an update to our book, Privacy and Big Data, since the just pre- and mostly post-Snowden era. When we proposed and wrote the book it was to fill a void. At the time, there was a lack of mainstream attention to the issues of privacy by the media and a lack of understanding of the issues and implications we all face in the digital world. As tech veterans of long standing, we have seen our world transformed for better and for worse by our industry. Much of the “worst” we chronicled in our book and at the time its release, many…

    By Mary Ludloff and Marilyn Craig Welcome back to the second post in our series on how to get value from your data. As we stated in a previous post: “Data, without the proper use of analytics, is meaningless. If data is the new oil, think of analytics as the oil drills—you need both to be successful.” Of course, getting to “success” is not easy as anyone involved in an analytics project will tell you. This series walks you through our methodology on what it takes—from inception to proof of concept to implementation and deployment—to navigate project pitfalls.

    By Mary Ludloff and Marilyn Craig Unless you’ve been asleep for the past couple of years, you, like us, have heard this phrase again and again:  Data is the new oil.  It certainly sounds great but what exactly does it mean? Here’s our take: Getting the most value out of your data can make you better at what you do as well as enable you to do more with what you have. In other words, there’s unrealized value in those data silos that all companies have. But make no mistake: the road to realizing data value is paved with good intentions and often times, poor execution and results. Today,…

    Jim Miller
    9 Jan 2015 | 3:21 pm
    Flash technology has proven to be a disruptive force in the storage marketplace. Server and network performance gains over the last decade have been substantial, but the hard drive performance needle has hardly moved. This situation has resulted in server utilization being reduced while waiting on storage input output (I/O) operations to be completed. Server virtualization has further contributed to this situation. Server virtualization has been deployed in most enterprises and has delivered great benefits, including environmental and footprint savings, more efficient server utilization, and…

    Reflecting on my earlier career in IT management, I have to confess to a level of astonishment at how naïve IT administrative practices were just a decade or two ago. Failure events were common, and most organizations just accepted as immutable fact the reality of systemic firefighting. IT services critical to business operations were all too often held together with little more than a hope and a prayer. Sure, my colleagues and I were acutely aware of the importance of performing “root cause analysis” and implementing proactive management practices, but who had the time for that? The…

    Attracting users takes more than just launching something cool. If you build it, they won’t come unless people can’t possibly live without it. That doesn’t happen often. Only amazing habit-forming products get users hooked right from the beginning. Even that takes more than a simple feature. If you focus on building an amazing product, people will find it, use it and talk about it. That is the basic foundation you need. Companies like Twitter, Foursquare, Reddit etc. now have millions. People are activity using them on daily basis. And you wonder how that came about.

Some of the problems with all that cutting and pasting are pretty obvious: another client's name being left in (oops) or funky formatting that doesn't match the new document. But others aren't.

    27 Jan 2015 | 1:15 am
    We all know what a big difference SEO makes in visibility, traffic and ultimately conversions. For many companies, SEO has become even more important than online advertising. But does your SEO strategy target users on mobile devices, or is it stuck in the desktop past? Of course, not all users are on mobile, and those who are have many ways to find you besides just search. We’ve been hearing for years how mobile is the next big thing, but many businesses have told themselves it’s only a small portion of traffic or that mobile is all about apps, not search. It looks like that…
  • Should Europe Regulate American Search Results?

    Andre Sólo
    26 Jan 2015 | 12:14 pm
    Google has drawn a line in the sand with the EU, at least for the time being. Last year European Union courts established a “right to be forgotten,” effectively bolstering their citizens’ privacy rights. Under that policy, citizens and residents of 32 European countries can request to have inaccurate or inappropriate information about them removed from search results. Google created a system for requesting removals and it seemed to be working fine. But now European regulators want to go a step further—a step all the way across the pond. Google has been removing pages…
  • How to Optimize for Different Branches of a Chain

    Andre Sólo
    23 Jan 2015 | 12:49 am
    Rachel Lindteigen recently penned a great piece on how to manage SEO for different local branches of a franchise. This presents a real problem for SEO because there are often individual websites, or pages on a single domain, for each location. They all represent the same brand and try to rank for the same keywords—often in very nearby geographic areas. We’ve found that different locations of any chain business can have similar problems, even if they’re not actually franchised. So how do you get them all to rank without cannibalizing each other? Rachel offers a few…
  • Now You Can Get Google to Show Your Social Media Accounts

    Andre Sólo
    22 Jan 2015 | 1:05 am
    As several media outlets have reported, Google just made a seemingly small but very significant change to how companies show up in its search results. When you search for a brand by name, the “knowledge graph” beside the results will now display the company’s social media accounts, making it easy to click through to any of them. (This isn’t automatic for all businesses, however; we’ll tell you how to get yours included below.) This is quite a change for Google. Previously the search engine only showed a link to a brand’s G+ page, which made a certain kind…

On this matter, the other days I was browsing through some reviews to find out more about my latest favorite game, Dark Souls 2 which by the way, it rocks. But, I'm not making video games reviews here. The thing is that while checking the Gamespot review, I noticed a very nice and original loader somehow inspired by the above tagline. I fall instantly in love with that animation and tried to replicate it with CSS, I just couldn't help myself. So, just in…

    All the numbers are pouring in on Q4 and things are looking pretty stellar for Apple. As we reported Tuesday, Apple crushed analysts' estimates, selling 74.5 million iPhones – up 46% compared to the year prior – its biggest-ever quarter by 23.4 million units. Analysts were expecting only 65 million units sold. And now we're learning that 74.5 million number is equal to Samsung in Q4 according to Bloomberg, citing an e-mailed statement by Strategy Analytics. That gives both Apple and Samsung a 19.6 percent smartphone market share, with Lenovo coming in third at 6.5 percent (they…

    Ricardo Brown didn't have to wonder what Comcast thought of him. Someone at the company changed his name to a not-very-nice word and then mailed him his monthly bill. His wife, Lisa, was shocked and irate when she saw the insulting bill. She contacted Comcast to try and have the name corrected, visiting her local Comcast office and even phoning regional executives. We can't imagine what those Comcast employees thought when they looked at the name on the bill and heard Lisa tell them that she didn't marry an A-hole, but a guy named Ricardo. But they apparently didn't believe her enough to…

    SEOUL (Reuters) - Samsung on Thursday reported its first annual earnings decline in three years, as strong chip earnings failed to make up for weakness in the South Korean giant's smartphone business. The semiconductor division was a bright spot as Samsung posted fourth-quarter operating profit of 5.3 trillion won ($4.88 billion), in line with the 5.2 trillion won profit the firm guided for earlier this month. The result put the firm's 2014 profit at 25 trillion won, down from a record 36.8 trillion won in 2013 and the lowest since 2011, as the world's top smartphone maker battles cheap…

For those of you who aren’t keeping tabs of security issues–Poodle was a big vulnerability discovered in the 2nd half of 2014, that affected the SSLv3 protocol. The only fix for Poodle was to completely stop using SSLv3 altogether, not a bad idea, since the protocol itself is nearly 18 years old. In other…

    Dear EarthTalk: How is it that antibiotics are being “overused,” as I’ve read, and what are the potential consequences? – Mitchell Chase, Hartford, CTThe development and widespread adoption of so-called “antibiotics”—drugs that kill bacteria and thereby reduce infection—has helped billions of people live longer, healthier lives. But all this tinkering with nature hasn’t come without a cost. The more we rely on antibiotics, the more bacteria develop resistance to them, which makes treating infections that much more challenging.According to the U.S. Centers for Disease…

    What was the last romantic gift you gave? Did it have a diamond? If not, you’re not alone. Diamond gifts as well are falling out of favour with many, particularly younger people. Perhaps it’s because of a suspicion of diamond marketing, and a rejection of the idea that love can be measured in cut, clarity, colour, and carat. Perhaps it’s because of growing awareness of blood diamonds fueling war in countries like Angola, Sierra Leone, and Côte d’Ivoire. But maybe it’s just that diamond jewelry isn’t very useful, and it’s tough to find extra cash to…

    By default, Windows ME, Windows XP and Windows Vista included Windows Movie Maker (WMM) for creating and editing home videos. With Windows 7, it became a separate product part of the Windows Live Essentials suite. The latest version was released in 2012 as Windows Movie Maker 2012 for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1. Depending on your version of Windows, you may or may not be able to burn a WMV file to a DVD from WMM. Windows Vista and Windows 7 both included a free program called Windows DVD Maker, which was sadly removed in Windows 8. Using Windows DVD Maker, you can burn a WMV file to DVD directly…

    Looking to switch from your ISP DNS to another provider? I was surprised to find out that using a free public DNS server from a reputable company was far better than using my local ISP DNS, especially when travelling in foreign countries. I was recently in India and was getting very frustrated with the constant Webpage cannot load errors followed by the website loading 5 seconds later. I kept seeing the DNS lookup failed message, so I figured let me try another DNS provider and that made an absolute world of difference. There are a bunch of public DNS servers you can use, but I won’t…

    If you have a file on your computer with a non-recognizable extension, then Windows will simply assign that file a generic file icon. If you work in a corporate environment, this can happen all the time with custom software applications using proprietary formats. Even if you are a home user, it might be worth your time to change the default icon that is assigned for a text document or for all PDF documents, etc. This tip is really just for customizing the look and feel of Windows to your liking. In Windows XP, changing a file type’s icon was very simple and could be done via Windows…

  • How to Setup Free Dynamic DNS for Remote Access to Your PC

    What is Dynamic DNS you might be asking? Basically, dynamic DNS is a service provided by third-party providers whereby a constantly changing IP address given by an ISP is updated regularly and associated with a hostname given by the company. If you have a broadband Internet connection at home, you more than likely have a dynamic IP address. A dynamic IP address changes every so often, as compared to a static IP address, which never changes. Normally, a changing IP address does not cause any problem until you try to connect to a local device from outside of your home network. With a…

    I don’t know about you, but I get bored of the smartphone I have after 12 months of ownership! Mobile manufacturers release new models all the time. They often have innovative new features which our existing handsets don’t contain. To take advantage of such new gadgets, we usually upgrade our smartphones and cell network contracts. More often than not, that involves changing the network provider to get the best deal. Once upon a time cell networks would match upgrade deals from their rivals. These days, competition isn’t so aggressive. They are keen to retain their existing customers.

    PPC or “pay-per-click” campaigns often get used by organizations that want to drive traffic to their sites. They are also useful for new sites that have few inbound links going to them from external websites. One of the most popular PPC services on the Internet is Google AdWords. Of course, the other major search engines also operate systems for corporate clients too. When you first sign up for such a service, one thing that will become obvious is how complex they are to use!

    John Morris

    When I first got into the online business/internet marketing space (way back in 2004) one of the ideas I saw thrown around a lot was this notion of getting business on “autopilot”. I always thought it was a little silly. It sounded like straight up hype to me. I mean how is it possible to get traffic, leads and sales on “autopilot”… the same numbers week after week without a lot of input on your part? Didn’t seem possible. And, for a lot of years I simply wrote it off as hype and didn’t think much more about it. Then, I started getting serious about…

And, I had a fairly extensive background in sales my first few years in the workforce. I certainly wasn’t in the Mark Zuckerberg mold of learning to code from age 7.

Ultimately, this allows the service to customize the listening experience, but more importantly, it supplies the company with valuable insights.

Now, that’s something new (and pretty creepy, if you ask me).

    19 Jan 2015 | 7:58 pm
    Shocking new research reveals that a specific type of lung cancer many smokers develop comes from tiny tears in their lung tissue caused by microscopic glass fibers, also known as glass wool, found in many conventional cigarette filters. These rips in the epithelial (soft) tissue fuel the development of tumors and cancerous cells due to the constant overload of toxins, namely pesticides, nicotine and ammonia, contained in commercial cigarette smoke. The filters of typical commercial cigarettes contain microscopic, needle-shaped shards of glass wool (like fiberglass insulation) which escape…

Massive Solar Storm A couple of days ago I read about the Carrington Event which was a massive geomagnetic solar storm in 1859. Apparently it wreaked havoc with the communications infrastructure of the time (telegraphs). Researchers have apparently been able to discover other similar events in earth’s history by analyzing ice cores from Greenland which indicate that events of this magnitude occur once every 500 years and smaller events typically…

  • PCM based neuromorphic processors

    19 Jan 2015 | 10:37 am
    Read an interesting article from Register the other day about  IBM’s Almadan Research lab using standard Non-volatile memory devices to implement a neural net. They apparently used 2-PCM (Phase Change Memory) devices to implement a 913 neuron/165K synapse pattern recognition system. This seems to be another (simpler, cheaper) way to create neuromorphic chips. We’ve written about neuromorphic chips before (see my posts on IBM SyNAPSE, IBM TrueNorth and MIT’s analog neuromorphic chip). The latest TrueNorth chip from IBM uses ~5B transistors and provides 1M neurons with…

  • Containers – What are they? Why do you need one? – Part 1

    20 Jan 2015 | 8:49 am
    Containers? No, not the shipping containers but the much-hyped container technology in the computer industry. I am sure even if you have not used any of the existing container technologies, you must have at least read or heard about them. I am not the first one to write about containers and this is certainly not an in-depth overview of container technologies. I will eventually get there and show you how you can deploy different container technologies. This series of articles is about my own thoughts and a documentation for my own reference. In the process, I wish to help my readers as well.

    Joe Kinsella
    27 Jan 2015 | 5:43 am
    I get asked on a regular basis what I’m looking for in engineers. I think most people are expecting the answers found in a typical job description - e.g. CS degree or equivalent, 4+ years commercial software experience, work experience with modern language (i.e. Python, Ruby, Scala), multi-threaded programming, and so on. But there is a fundamental truth of hiring that often gets lost in traditional job descriptions: great engineers are not defined by their degree, number of years experience, or the technologies they work with - but by their core abilities / traits. Here are the 5 abilities…

Last year venture capitalists invested almost $5 billion in local companies, making the tech sector one of the fastest growing segments of our local economy. In addition to the professional freedom and challenges that comes with joining a startup, the re-opened IPO market and a steady flow of M&A hold out the possibility of financial success should you pick a winner. But choosing the right startup can be challenging for professionals already in the community, and even more so for those…

A YouTube video of the presentation is provided below. In the video you can see the heritage of many of the modern technologies and services upon which our industry is built (e.g. personal computer, mouse, document collaboration, peer to peer networking, and more).

    I’ve made a few visits to Andreessen Horowitz over the last two years, and each time paid little attention to the books on the wall to wall bookshelves in the lobby. Arriving a little early for an informal coffee meeting last November, I spent a few minutes reviewing the books, which ranged from histories (e.g. Ambrose’s D Day) to tech non-fiction (e.g. Innovator’s Dilemma) to self-help / how-tos (e.g. Learning Rails). When the partner I was meeting came out, I couldn’t help but ask: “Where do all the books come from? Partners bring them in?” “Oh no,” he said. “Those all…

  • So You Thought A Quadcopter Was A Harmless Toy?

    29 Jan 2015 | 1:06 am
    The sale of quadcopters has been booming recently and they are available in all shapes, sizes and prices. However, it seems that not all quadcopters are the same, some have been weaponised and the video above shows just how a simple drone can become a weapon that flies. As you will see, basically this is quadcopter […]

Luckily, nobody was harmed because it was not a real polar bear at all. It was all part of a publicity […]

  • The Conference In Detroit

    Michael Arrington
    5 Jan 2015 | 9:38 am
    Detroit. It was once the factory of America. No more. For most of us, Detroit has been a city in decline for much or all of our lives. The population has declined rapidly, and everyone has seen the images of abandoned buildings, drug violence and abject poverty. In other words, Detroit is the perfect place to begin anew. There is an energy there as people begin to rebuild. A willingness to experiment. A stubbornness to succeed. Tech startups can play a pivotal role in rebuilding, but infrastructure is needed. We are seeing a dramatic increase in the number of Detroit based startups looking…
  • The Ethics Of Publishing Hacked Information

    Michael Arrington
    15 Dec 2014 | 12:54 pm
    Like many people I’ve been fascinated by the Sony hacks. So much interesting information (and gossip) about the inner workings of a major movie studio. I was also waiting for Sony to start balking at the re-publication of a lot of that information by the news sites. And sure enough, they’re now calling it stolen information, and threatening publications that are sharing it with the public. It reminds me distinctly of the situation we found ourselves in in 2009 when a hacker delivered a truckload of internal Twitter information. See In Our Inbox: Hundreds Of Confidential Twitter…
  • MTailor: The Perfectly Tailored Man’s Shirt

    Michael Arrington
    10 Dec 2014 | 2:21 pm
    MTailor, one of our recent investments at CrunchFund, is a really amazing company. They make tailored shirts for men, except your mobile device is the tailor. You go through a quick scanning process that involves leaning your phone or tablet against a wall and then spinning slowly in front of it. Once that’s done MTailor has your measurements, which they say are 20% better than actual tailors they used for a study. I’ve never owned tailored shirts but I should have. I have a longer body than average and generally buy tall shirts when I can find them. That’s been harder with…
  • “Time Collapse” And My Broken Brain

    Michael Arrington
    10 Nov 2014 | 9:52 pm
    I was perusing the news headlines this evening and I noticed this article about Glenn Beck’s health troubles. A few sentences early on in the article floored me, because it describes how I feel exactly: “Doctors tell me that up until recently, I hadn’t had a real REM sleep in maybe as long as a decade,” Beck said. “I didn’t have a dream that I remember, except one in a decade. And quite honestly, this isn’t a symptom you look to fix if you have a ton to do. But the first sign of trouble I noticed was what I call a ‘time collapse.’ If we had met before, I couldn’t tell…
  • Abacus, The Expense Software Employees Love, Raises $3.5 Million

    Michael Arrington
    31 Oct 2014 | 6:46 am
    I hate expense reports. I do them once a year and I still hate it. Back when I had to do them monthly or have the finance department all over me I hated them twelve times as much. Abacus fixes all that. The company was founded by Omar Qari, Ted Power and Josh Halickman (Foursquare, Google, Etsy Venmo and other experience) and they launched earlier this year at Winter Y Combinator. You can read their launch post here. How does Abacus fix expense reports? When a company starts using Abacus, they link their bank account. Employees set themselves up in the app and also link their bank account.

    The recent controversy surrounding the impoundment of Uber affiliated taxis in Cape Town has highlighted the need for consumers to be more aware of who they do business with.

    28 Jan 2015 | 8:35 pm
    In the grand old business of building cars, mainstream segments are where the big money’s at. Right? Well, generally speaking, yes. Budget hatchbacks, for instance, have proven to be the bread-and-butter of many a large manufacturer. Cheap to make and popular with cash-strapped consumers (that’d be most of us, then), these often-bland offerings tend to […]

  • Ramblings of an Entrepreneur

    Renee Schmidt
    8 Jan 2015 | 12:13 pm
    The life of an entrepreneur is not a particularly easy one. Doors open one day and for weeks or months new ones can remain shut. When doors are shut and no amount of knocking will open them, there’s nothing to lean on but certainty. Sometimes that certainty stems from a distant reminder of when a door unexpectedly flung open in the past. Other times that certainty borders on mania, stemming from nothing more than an inexplicable knowing from within. People sometimes remark to me of their admiration of how far I’ve come as an entrepreneur (how far is actually debatable, but that’s a…

    It’s been quite a while since I’ve picked up my proverbial pen and sat down to write a blog post.  Anyone who understands me well also understands that my mind is constantly abuzz with information, thoughts, and ideas. But for whatever reason I’ve lately been unable or unwilling to take a breather —and a moment—to express myself. It’s been a compounding problem, as I’ll soon explain.  Over lunch yesterday with a dear and long-time friend who I hadn’t seen in a while, I was offered some simple and valuable advice: just start writing. And so I am. In an increasingly…

    This past week I listened to a presentation for young professional (20s and 30s) from one of the largest asset management firms in the world. The objective, which is of course to educate the audience, is also meant to help the firm snatch up talent and future wealth management clientele while those prospects are still spring chickens. Although I found the information presented to be generally useful and relevant to the respective audience, I couldn’t help but take a devils-advocate view on —well— just about everything. I bit my tongue until they presented this one particular example…

    Exposure, one of the more recent special effects photo apps to arrive on the iOS platform, seeks to step away from the technique of merely applying filters in favor of custom editing discrete parts of your photos. This encourages more originality by letting users to pick and choose which filters they want to use and where to place them in order to best emphasize critical parts of a scene. With Exposure, you edit photos with a tap or tap and drag, without having to use your finger as a paintb

  • Apple posts record profits but have lost its inspiration

    28 Jan 2015 | 5:42 am
    Apple has posted the biggest quarterly profit ever made by a public company, but while they lead all other technology companies in the financial stakes, they have lost their position as a visionary in the field. Apple reported a net profit of $18bn (£11.8bn) in its first fiscal quarter, soaring past the previous record of $15.9bn set by ExxonMobil in 2012, as a result of record sales of its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The Cupertino-based company beat analysts expectations by a large margin, selling 74.5 million iPhones in the three months to 27 December, a number described by Apple CEO Tim…

    27 Jan 2015 | 2:18 pm
    The integration of the internet and web-enabled services into our daily lives means that it doesn’t matter if you are running a local restaurant or a startup trying to become the next Facebook – fast and reliable broadband has become a necessity. A slow connection will mean complaints form staff who cannot complete their tasks, managers who cannot access their projects, and even worse it could stop sales from going through. Email and social media obviously require internet access, but even the phone systems in most modern offices have moved to VoIP technology, leaving a business…
  • Why Three buying O2 is bad for consumers

    23 Jan 2015 | 4:32 am
    Competition is what has kept the UK’s mobile industry competitive over the years, but recent acquisitions and consolidation are making the marketplace less competitive than ever. Spanish telecoms group Telefonica put O2 on the market a few months ago, and there has been interest from a number of parties including BT, but it appears that the UK’s largest mobile network will soon be sold to Three-owner Hutchison Whampoa for £10 billion. Three has been one of the major disruptive forces in the UK’s mobile market since its launch, offering users large data bundles and unlimited…
  • Windows 10 upgrade will be free for Windows 7 and 8 users

    Microsoft has announced that it will offer Windows 7 and 8 users a free upgrade to Windows 10 when it is released later this year. The free upgrade will be available for 12 months after the release of Windows 10, as Microsoft has decided that it is more important to get the greatest number of people using Windows 10 as quickly as possible than to squeeze a few more dollars out of their existing customers. Apple has long offered free upgrades to its OSX operating system, and it results in them having fewer legacy installs to support and has the bonus of keeping users happy that they are still…

    We're constantly surprised by the incredible worlds that game developers are able to create, but we're never satisfied with the visuals for very long. Where Half-Life 2 once shocked a generation of gamers, it can't even begin to stand up to many of the independent games being released in 2015. Even the latest AAA releases aren't leaps and bounds over what we saw at the end of the PS3 and Xbox 360 life cycles, but Unreal Engine 4 has the potential to change everything. Continue reading...
